Philips AE5230 DAB+ digital radio

The first DAB+ digital receiver from Philips, the AE5230 features a classic desktop design, FM reception, QuickScan for locating DAB+ stations, a bright and easy to read backlit LCD, and stereo headphone input.

The absence of internet radio, iPod dock and music streaming functions means the AE5230 is an affordable entry into digital radio according to Philips, costing just $180.
